This little delight has wonderful homemade cabinet goodies all made with delicious french flair. They also have a great menu including authentic french galettes.
Worth stopping off if you are passing through Blenheim to tour the South Island as it is centrally located at the train station and beside the tourist information centre .
For locals it's an absolute treat to have as a go to coffee or lunch stop.
Try the caramel and walnut tart and the traditional ham and cheese French sandwich. So authentic, you could close your eye and be back in La France!

Great setting in the old railway station building. Right next to the information center and on the main highway. Good selection of counter food and menu food. They have a selection of ice creams as well. There is an outdoor area right on the train platform if you want to dine outside. Great pies!

We stopped in for a late lunch, and wow, the food is even better than our last visit. There is a French theme running through the menu along with French decor. It is rustic French fare, galettes with a variety of fillings. I had the seafood lovers galette (crepe) and it was divine, just a lovely match of spinach, cream cheese and smoked salmon accompanied by a fresh crisp lettuce salad complete with red onion and croutons. We are definately dining here again, sooner rather than later.

Taste testing the ice cream is a great way to try things you wouldn't normally be brave enough to. The deli food is fresh homestyle. The high teas are becoming very popular.
